{You are Special}


 Hello and welcome to my blog! Do you have any exciting weekend plans? It will be a quiet one for us this weekend but the weather is dark and dreary so I'm ok with that. I am in a happy mood because yesterday I received Happy mail from Paper Crafts magazine and found out that I had THREE cards picked up for publication in the next issue of Holiday Card and More! I am so excited! Thanks for letting me share!
     Since 3 seems to be a lucky number for me I am going to be posting 3 cards in the next 3 days. All 3 of my cards will feature A Muse Studios supplies! I just want you guys to see how awesome this company is! For my card today I used the set "Friend to Friend". I colored the flowers with two Copic markers, lipstick red, and begonia pink and then fussy cut them out with paper snips. The leaves were stamped in Grass ink. I used matching Bubblegum gingham card stock along with Bubblegum polka do card stock. I used my A Muse Studio butterfly metal die to create the pretty layered butterfly using scraps of the same paper. Isn't it cute?! The sentiment is also from the "Friend to Friend" stamp set.  I roughed up the edges of my flowers and sentiment and finished off the card with you guessed it, Bubble gum ribbon! I love this card and have someone special in mind to give it to! Now, to celebrate my "weekend of 3's" I am going to give away some very yummy blog candy featuring a few of my favorite A Muse Studio goodies.   



Several butterfly die cuts, and a full package (12 yards) of toffee twine. I love, love this twine and I know you will to! Now to win my candy you must follow my blog, and comment on this post. Now if you would like two more chance to win come back tomorrow, and Monday and comment on all three of my A Muse Studio cards! Easy peasy! Today I am playing along with a handful of challenges:
